    right my new tank (well not quite new!)is a 240L Juwel rio. i have ripped out the internal filter :D

    right my stocking, it wont be massively planted as i wanted to go for a cichlid tank but now i want a community but just with some larger slightly more expensive fish so for my 240L tank would this work.?

    4 keyholes (i prefer the shorter finned females but do i need a male?)
    4 bosemani rainbows
    4 Melanotaenia Praecox (dwarf rainbow)
    and a small shoal of harlequins (say 8-10)
    1 BN
    (my 2 clown plecs would probaly move in as well)

    would they work at all? should i increase or decrease any of the numbers?

    cheers.

    All seems good to me. I would personally just get a pair of Keholes, one male and one female, just to balance things out a bit and maybe get another BN - one of each sex maybe.
